Can’t wait to hear what you picked out for us this week.

Lefty sounding lovely.

They should build him a statue. Oh, wait...they did www.roadsideamerica.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 8/14/19 8:12pm ultradamno:

He seems in danger of toppling over from the size of his guitar, but it's the thought that counts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 8/14/19 8:18pm ultradamno:

Look more proportional from this angle twitter.com...

Hello!

He looks like Gerald Ford to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 8/14/19 8:28pm ultradamno:

Hopefully there's not a Squeaky statue sneaking up on him.
Avatar Wed. 8/14/19 8:29pm JakeGould:

I don’t know about statues for music stars. They all seem to stink.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 8/14/19 8:32pm ultradamno:

I like they have his left boot up in mid-tap.
Avatar Wed. 8/14/19 8:35pm Becky:

@Jake It's always the teeth that look weird.
  Wed. 8/14/19 8:37pm Marie:

Howdy Becky. Loving the show. Thanks!
Avatar Wed. 8/14/19 8:37pm Becky:

Thanks Marie!

There was a single of Little Bit of Soap around the house when I was a kid, I guess it was The Jarmels' version.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 8/14/19 8:42pm ultradamno:

A collection of musician statues and plaques that largely support Jake's thesis www.pinterest.com...
  Wed. 8/14/19 8:49pm Marie:

Along similar (?) lines, I can't Randy Newman's work (what I have heard of it).
Avatar Wed. 8/14/19 8:49pm Becky:

Same, Marie!
  Wed. 8/14/19 8:50pm Marie:

I mean, I know he is not a country guy but his appeal has always been a mystery to me
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 8/14/19 8:50pm Clyde:

Burn On is kind of a great Randy Newman track.
  Wed. 8/14/19 8:50pm miles:

gp( the guy) is at once overrated & underrated. I rarely play his stuff if I'm DJing a country set. always an attractive debate
  Wed. 8/14/19 8:50pm Marie:

That's nice to hear, that someone like you (with great taste, to me) doesn't like him either ;-)
Avatar Wed. 8/14/19 8:51pm JakeGould:

There are some fairly big name artists that “everyone agrees on” I can’t stand. Proud to be a first gen American with an opinion and sense of self-taste!
Avatar Wed. 8/14/19 8:52pm JakeGould:

Outside of liking “Short People” as a kid, Randy Newman has always felt like someone I *must* appreciate instead of someone I would appreciate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 8/14/19 8:52pm ultradamno:

About a week ago on 7 Sec Delay they kind of drew a parallel between Newman and Warren Zevon, who I never really connected with either. It's that kind of self-satisfied wit...
  Wed. 8/14/19 8:52pm Marie:

@Jake--yeah, some middle brow people with power apparently like his stuff
Avatar Wed. 8/14/19 8:54pm Becky:

I don't care for Steely Dan.
  Wed. 8/14/19 8:55pm Marie:

"Short people"--that was his ticket to acceptability, I think. Like, was it the first song that dealt with being short? (or should I say, "height-challenged"?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 8/14/19 8:55pm ultradamno:

I don't know if the Bakersfield sound overall really does much for me, actually.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 8/14/19 8:55pm ultradamno:

...off the Parsons comment.
Avatar Wed. 8/14/19 8:55pm JakeGould:

Steely Dan is very big in the conservative/Orthodox Jewish community. That’s like edgy for some.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/14/19 8:56pm Richard S:

Another fun show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 8/14/19 8:56pm ultradamno:

I always thought Steely Dan got a lot more credit for being cutting (if not edgy) than they deserved.
  Wed. 8/14/19 8:57pm Marie:

Probably some short hollywood mopey exec. hopped on to his train after "Short People"--of course, I actually know almost nothing about his career, except he is famous soundtrack writer? Idk :>)
  Wed. 8/14/19 8:59pm slowbear:

this is too catchy
